Al Jazeera’s Peter Greste Writes from Cairo Cell

After a year in a Cairo prison, Al Jazeera journalist Peter Greste, an Australian, sent an end-of-year letter to supporters: "We have galvanised an incredible coalition of political, diplomatic and media figures, as well as a vast army of social media supporters to fight for that most basic of rights: the right to know... Never has cleared-eyed, critical, sceptical journalism been more necessary."
